Conquering Columbus Podcast
About This Show
Conquering Columbus is a brand for those across Central Ohio who are determined to find a way to align their skills, values, and talents in order to make a lasting and long impact during their lifetime on the city of Columbus. With a podcast as our medium, we research and interview those across Columbus, and at times abroad, who have achieved success in areas ranging from business and athletics, to medicine and beyond.
The goals of the Conquering Columbus podcast is to document these individuals stories – from how they got to where they are today, to gaining a better insight into who they are and how they think – and provide our listening base in the city with valuable content to apply to their own lives. We have long term hopes that the podcast will become a central hub for all things extraordinary in Columbus, ultimately inspiring those across the city and connecting dots that otherwise may have been left unconnected for the worse.

Joe Anstine is the Co-Founder & CEO of PriorAuthNow, a company dedicated to changing the fragmented and broken process of prior authorizations in the personal healthcare space (and single-handedly putting the fax machine industry out of business). With no previous experience or background in healthcare, Joe has grown himself into an expert in the field of prior authorizations in the personal healthcare space by listening to his customers, being a sponge for information, and constantly adapting his product to fit his customers’ needs. Above all else, what’s really special about Joe is that he’s not in it for the money or the glory, he simply loves the process, and he wants to build a company and culture that people want to be a part of and that’s delivering products people couldn’t imagine their lives without.
